- Nanay Teresita is now on her life's new chapter as her huge face tumor got removed because of KMJS fundraising and awareness of her condition
- The donations flooded because of a viral post on Facebook about Nanay Teresita's condition
- Her family is now happy as can be when they saw her transformation and almost impossible-to-remove tumor on her face
A previously viral story by KMJS was about Nanay Teresita, who used to suffer from a huge tumor that weighed 5 kilograms. This gave her a life she endured for so long, after she grieved her late husband. Donations poured out and this led to her amazing transformation.
KAMI learned that Nanay Teresita had suffered from a huge growth on her face, which many feared to be a malignant tumor on her face.
Two months after her viral story, donations gushed all over Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho's Facebook page, telling people about her story.
Over 20 medical experts gathered to study Nanay Teresita's case, as they pondered that hers would not be an easy one to remove. They feared that her condition as an old woman with low immune response might hamper the possibility of the tumor's removal.
The doctors also confirmed that her 5-kilogram tumor was benign (non-cancerous) and could be removed via a surgical operation.
On the one hand, the team of oncologists, anesthesiologists, and surgeons, who oversaw her condition had decided to push forward and grant the family and public's demand to have the tumor broken off her face.
Two months before her operation, Nanay Teresita was brought to a geriatric hospice, where she was provided with ample nutrition and rest in order to prepare for her tumor's removal.
Surgeons were able to remove the tumor. According to them, they had done a mere sacrifice, as the benign tumor had been severely tangent to a facial nerve.
As such, they all had a unanimous decision to remove the tumor while affecting the facial nerve, which led to her face's partial paralysis.
In a recent episode of KMJS, the much awaited facial transformation was anticipated by her loved ones and people who had initially donated generous amounts of money for her journey toward transformation.
